Multiple Castlevania Anniversary Collection Physical Editions Coming!


Castlevania Anniversary Collection was a pretty cool release. While it didn’t cover every game in the franchise, it gave us some of the best and some weirdest. It even threw in some of the Gameboy games!
Now the once digital-only release is coming to the real world and is packing a punch!
Oh, my! Limited Run is pulling out all the stops when it comes to Castlevania. The Anniversary Edition was cool enough, but bundling it with so much swag is glorious!
We’re looking at four different versions of this limited edition release that will include PS4 and Nintendo Switch copies of the collection. Nintendo Life spotted the multiple SKUs showing up.
